    Definately recommend Ocean Sands Resort as a place to enjoy with your family (we brought our 2 kids ages 2 and 5) quiet and peaceful with an amazing view-we will definately be back to relax without the kids!

    The place was better than expected. I love that the suite comes with so many amenities in the kitchen, including a bbq grill and propane. All you have to bring is the food. Will definitely be planning a trip back.

    Spacious condo...loved the "home-away-from-home" experience. Never heard any road noise which is always a plus when we travel. Loved the close beach access. Staff were a delight! Would not hesitate to stay here again, and highly recommend the Ocean Sands!
